FFT in PD was killing my old PC, so last year I was planning to hack PD
with a fast FFT library. Now that I have a better PC it's less of a
priority. There's a couple good FFT libraries out there:
The last one is optimised for MMX and is fast; it's experimental stuff,
but I tried it once with some C application and it was working very
well. Then I tried to replace the mayer fft calls in d_fft.c with the
ones from the pfftw library. It didn't work so maybe someone have an
idea how to do it.
